#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT - comment

Recommended Posts

in everybody configuration.h stays this code :

 


#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {78.7402,78.7402,200*8/3,760*1.1} // default steps per unit for ultimaker

This last Number 760*1.1 gives 836 steps per E

I think that beside this code it should be comment that is missing everybody:

760*1.1 is for new bolt - think it is v3 version

......but many of us that have v2 bolt and made hot bed this is not working good- it shold be 865

I think that this must be commented in code, because many that must compile new FW for HOTBED will run in problem of extruding to small amount of filament.....

It doesn't matter if you use cura as this is ignored. In all gcode files generated with cura it says (second line of file):

M92 E836.000000

 

This M92 E___ command sets the steps/mm. This line is in EVERY gcode file cura creates. To set this value, in cura, go to "file" "preferences".

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
